Senior Project Manager
Tessa joined Basis as a design drafter shortly after she received her B.A. in architecture from U.C. Berkeley. Ten years later she’s Senior Project Manager, part owner of the firm, and still loving her reverse commute from and to the city. (“The view never gets old!”) Tessa has always been into the nuts and bolts of projects—from creating and prioritizing the scope of work to managing the permit and construction processes all the way through to the finished product. “Working in affordable housing, I’m helping to change people’s day-to-day lives, often giving them a sense of community pride they didn’t have before.” Tessa’s just two exams away from having her architect’s license. On weekends, she splits her time between studying and strolling San Francisco.
